Level 1 trauma center. Two ED RN's for level one traumas- one primary, one circulating. EMT's run the Belmont and chart. ED resident does airway, trauma team does primary and secondary assessment. Other team members include pharmacy, RT, lab, pulmonary tech, XR and CT, and consulting services for the specific trauma, like neurosurg, ortho, etc. RN's are required to have TNCC and standard ED certifications, i.e., PALS, ACLS, etc. RN's must demonstrate the following set ups- RSI, chest tube, art line, CL, blood admin, ventilator management, tourniquet application...and other basic skills necessary for traumas.
Only time we use ICU RN's is with ED initiated ECMO, in which the ED RN runs the code while the CVICU RN's and CT surgery manage the ECMO.
